Daily Technical Forecast
Based on the early price action, the direction of the December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average the rest of the session on Thursday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the uptrending Gann angle at 26983 and the short-term 50% level at 26909.
A sustained move over 26983 will indicate the presence of buyers. Overtaking the downtrending Gann angle at 27040 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could trigger an acceleration to the upside with the next target angle dropping in at 27176. This is the last potential resistance angle before the 27230 minor top and main tops at 27262, 27312 and 27338.
A sustained move under 26909 will signal the presence of sellers. The next downside target is the short-term Fibonacci level at 26833, followed by a downtrending Gann angle at 26768.
Crossing to the weak side of the downtrending Gann angle at 26768 will put the Dow in a position to challenge the main Fibonacci level at 26697.
Watch the price action and read the order flow at 26904 all session. This is last week’s close. A trade below this level will put the Dow in a position to form a potentially bearish closing price reversal top. This could trigger the start of a 2 to 3 week correction.
